Schematics from FMV

On August 30, 1999 the schematics finally arrived from FMV (Swedish Defence Materiel Administration), after 5-6 months of mails and phone calls - nagging pays off! Included in the envelope was not only a very nice building plan in 1:70 scale, complete with frames (well, enough to build a model from, at least) but also a leaflet over the Combat Boat showing internals, details and colours used. All rights belong to FMV, of course, but this is not secret information so it's OK to download for reference. If you print these, choose landscape format.

s90b01 -- Very nice 3D image giving a good feel for how it looks. This is a much better scan than what has been around on the net for some time. This was tricky to fix the original was so big I had to scan it 3 times and afterwards cut and paste to get it right.

Colors and Area-Scheme

To show the absolute correct colors are not possible, but below is a good estimate. Below scheme's four colors are as this, hull-bottom is black. Compare with photos on the real thing.

Given the fickle nature of computer screens and printers, it's impossible to show an absolutely accurate depiction of the colours used, but the table below should give you a rough idea. The four colours are below, and the underside of the hull is black. Refer to photos of the prototype for more detail.

(1) Color Code 048 Yellow-Green, taste of sand

s90camo01 -- Camoflage colors and area scheme. This is from a friend of mine, not from FMV directly.

First Drawing

Length 14.9m equals to 106.4cm in 1:14 scale. Width 3.8m equals to 27.1cm in 1:14 scale

This was all I got to start making my own plans from, the first 6 months. 'Stridsbåt', thats swedish for 'Combat boat'. I keep this for historic reasons, see above plans for better reference.
